Thinkers of the East on labor education. Labor education is the core of Uzbek national pedagogy. Raising children's love for work from early childhood was a sacred responsibility of the family. Folk wisdom says that a person is beautiful in work, and therefore " the coal miner is not ashamed of a black face." Education of children's love for work finds a vivid expression in a number of Proverbs and sayings: "you will Work hard, so you will get good", "If you have a hardworking son, then your arable land is plowed", "you will not easily achieve the goal." The people always took care that the younger generation mastered a number of professions, everyone became a"Jack of all trades". "Avesta" (VII-VI centuries BC) says that the development and education should be based on the triad: the development of the mind, kindness, hard work (us — EY, S. M.). People's assessment of work as a decisive factor in the formation of a harmonious personality echoes the views on the work of many Eastern thinkers. Ibn Sina (XI C.) in the system of education and training includes such a component: learning a craft (labor education) and gives recommendations on educational work of students: exercises should be standardized, combined with physical exercises; training should go gradually, from easy to difficult, etc. Beruni (XI C.) writes that labor education should be of a craft nature: the craft (profession) should be taught to all children: from families of the rich and poor. Children need to develop work skills and develop a love and habit for work. Ibn Sina believed that in an ideal state, a just ruler should be engaged in socially useful work, and in maktabs there should necessarily be training in the craft.
